Located in the north city centre adjacent to the Corinthian Picture Theatre (later Odeon 2/Screen 2). The Astor Cinema was opened on 12th March 1953 with Vittoria De Sica’s “Bicycle Thieves”. It was a conversion of a former auction house, and was designed by architect William O'Dyer.
It was the first art house cinema to operate in the city. In the 1970’s it was taken over by the Ward-Anderson chain, and went over to mainstream films. The Astor Cinema was closed on 16th June 1984 with “Adventures of a Private Eye” and “Screwballs”. The foyer was converted into a video store, while the auditorium lay unused and became derelict. It was demolished in November 2002, together with its neighbour Screen 2.
